emacs library that enhances minibuffer/input completion


Icicles lets you do the following:
 * cycle through completion candidates that match your current
 * use a pattern to match completion candidates, including:
     - regexp matching (including substring).
     - fuzzy matching.
     - prefix matching (as in vanilla Emacs).
     - command abbreviation matching.
 * use multiple regexps to match candidates, chaining these filters
   together like piped 'grep' commands.
 * see all possible complete inputs (pertinent commands, variables,
   and so on) that match your partial or regexp input: the list is
   updated dynamically (incrementally) if you change your input.
 * see all previous inputs that match your partial or regexp input,
   and selectively reuse them.
 * match input against completion candidates that do not match a
   given regexp; that is, complement the set of matches and use the
   result for subsequent matching.
 * use multiple regexps to search (and replace) text across
   multiple buffers, files, or regions.
 * search areas of text that have a certain text property, such as
   a face.
 * browse Imenu or tags entries that match your partial or regexp
 * create and use multiple-choice menus; that is, menus where you
   can choose multiple entries any number of times.
 * create and use multi-commands so you can perform an action on
   any number of candidate inputs any number of times.
 * perform set operations (intersection, union, etc) on the fly,
   using sets of completion candidates or other strings.
 * persistently save and later reuse sets of completion candidates
   (e.g. project file names).
 * complete input piecewise, against multiple completion
   candidates, in parallel.
 * complete key sequences, and navigate the key-binding hierarchy
   (this includes the menu bar menu hierarchy) (see also LaCarte)
 * sort completion candidates on the fly, in multiple,
   context-dependent ways.
